THIRD SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

1 Kings 17:17–24; Psalm 30:1–12; Galatians 1:11–24; Luke 7:11–17
Jesus Raises Us from Death to Life
St. Paul’s apostolic office was not a self-chosen pursuit, but a divine call to preach the Son of God “among the Gentiles” (Gal. 1:15–16). What he preached was “not man’s gospel” (Gal. 1:11), but the revelation of Christ Jesus. The Old Testament prophets also preached the same Lord Jesus in many and various ways. Though death is a harsh reminder of sin (1 Kings 17:18), Elijah’s raising of the widow’s son confirmed that the Word of the Lord is truth (1 Kings 17:24). It pointed forward to the death and resurrection of Christ. So also, when Jesus raised the widow’s son at Nain, He anticipated His own Resurrection. Just as “He came up and touched the bier” (Luke 7:14), so He takes our sin and death upon Himself in order to atone for our sin and destroy our death by His cross and Passion.

Worldview Everlasting – Spleen of Plenty (Luke 7:10-17)
Greek Tuesday gets to continue on in Luke as Pastor Fisk looks at Luke 7:11-17. This is an epic passage, with a battle between light and darkness that foreshadows the work that will be accomplished on the cross. We've got light fighting darkness, cleanness rubbing off on dirtiness, and spleens falling out all over the place in compassion. A lot of epicness packed in to this episode!

Luke 7:11–17 (SBLGNT)
11 Καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἑξῆς ἐπορεύθη εἰς πόλιν καλουμένην Ναΐν, καὶ συνεπορεύοντο αὐτῷ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ὄχλος πολύς.
12 ὡς δὲ ἤγγισεν τῇ πύλῃ τῆς πόλεως, καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐξεκομίζετο τεθνηκὼς μονογενὴς υἱὸς τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ, καὶ αὐτὴ ἦν χήρα, καὶ ὄχλος τῆς πόλεως ἱκανὸς ἦν σὺν αὐτῇ.
13 καὶ ἰδὼν αὐτὴν ὁ κύριος ἐσπλαγχνίσθη ἐπʼ αὐτῇ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ· Μὴ κλαῖε.
14 καὶ προσελθὼν ἥψατο τῆς σοροῦ, οἱ δὲ βαστάζοντες ἔστησαν, καὶ εἶπεν· Νεανίσκε, σοὶ λέγω, ἐγέρθητι.
15 καὶ ἀνεκάθισεν ὁ νεκρὸς καὶ ἤρξατο λαλεῖν, καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὸν τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ.
16 ἔλαβεν δὲ φόβος πάντας, καὶ ἐδόξαζον τὸν θεὸν λέγοντες ὅτι Προφήτης μέγας ἠγέρθη ἐν ἡμῖν, καὶ ὅτι Ἐπεσκέψατο ὁ θεὸς τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ.
17 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ὁ λόγος οὗτος ἐν ὅλῃ τῇ Ἰουδαίᾳ περὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ πάσῃ τῇ περιχώρῳ.
11 And it came to pass, on the morrow, he was going on to a city called Nain, and there were going with him many of his disciples, and a great multitude,
12 and as he came nigh to the gate of the city, then, lo, one dead was being carried forth, an only son of his mother, and she a widow, and a great multitude of the city was with her.
13 And the Lord having seen her, was moved with compassion towards her, and said to her, ‘Be not weeping;’
14 and having come near, he touched the bier, and those bearing it stood still, and he said, ‘Young man, to thee I say, Arise;’
15 and the dead sat up, and began to speak, and he gave him to his mother;
16 and fear took hold of all, and they were glorifying God, saying—‘A great prophet hath risen among us,’ and—‘God did look upon His people.’
17 And the account of this went forth in all Judea about him, and in all the region around.
